Cardigan - Taylor Swift
According to Rolling Stones Magazine, Taylor was “inspired by the feeling of isolation and how that can be either freeing or terrifying, and how it causes you to reminisce on the past.” An atmospheric video that is both metaphorical and moody. It was written and directed by Swift which lends itself to deconstruction.
Dynamite - BTS
The music video for BTS' first English track surpassed 1 billion views — a rare feat achieved by only a handful of musicians and content creators on the platform. With a colorful vibe and happy energy, the song came at the right time. It marked the most successful music-video, racking up 101.1 million views on Youtube within 24 hours.
Rain On Me - Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande
Released during the start of the pandemic, Vanity Fair said the video is "bit of nostalgia to another unexpectedly bygone era: the pre-coronavirus days when droplets didn’t fill us with fear." In the lavishly produced and animated video, Gaga and Grande are dancing in a few futuristic, rave-like settings. What a time...
Watermelon Sugar - Harry Styles
Another summer anthem that gave viewers an experience. The video dropped during a time when people were supposed to be avoiding any personal contact. Watching Harry and all the other people in the video rolling around with each other felt almost odd. However, all the cast had to keep it hush until the actual premiere.
Yummy - Justin Bieber
A song for his wife, Hailey Bieber Yummy is one of Justin's more unconventional videos. Bieber enjoys a meal with a special someone and the video revolves around a modern date. The track is full of metaphors that left fans wondering all the details behind the song.
